A European trade business welcomed an array of premium Spanish fruit and veg companies to Barking last week, in the latest of a series of successful trade missions

Currently setting up a second permanent office in Malaga, Tradex Consultancy UK are looking to expand operations over the next few months.

After linking 10 Spanish producers with 27 British sellers in just two days, managing director Jesús Manso Arcas, 31, is already planning the next move.

“Some British companies have asked us about going to Spain to meet with buyers over there, which is something we hope to do,” he said.

“We’ve brought Spanish produce to Britain, so hopefully now we can take British produce to Spain.”
